Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has accused Canongate of "old-fashioned opportunism and duplicity" over it publishing of his memoir today without his approval (Assange previously signed a contract with Canongate that he then tried to cancel, despite having received a £500,000 advance.
In a statement released yesterday, Canongate said because Assange has not repaid his advance, the contract stood and it was going ahead with publication. It said: "We believe it explains both the man and his work, underlining his commitment to the truth. Julian always claimed the book was well written; we agree, and this has encouraged us to make the book available to readers."
